‘In Costume’ Competition – April 2013

16 entries were submitted for the 'In Costume' competition at the Midleton Park Hotel on 23/4/13. Variety was in evidence as the members judged the projected images.

The members broke up into groups of 5 and looked through all the images quickly first so that everyone could get a flavour of the entries. They then went through them again slowly so each group could discuss the image and mark them out of 10 each on composition, lighting and creativity.

While scores were being totted up each photographer spoke about how they came to take their chosen image and how they lit the subject etc. With the scores tallied the winners were revealed: in 3rd place Vivian Lee with her image of a floating mask. In 2nd place Finbarr O'Shea with a photo of a child eating an apple, and in 1st place was  Mervyn Daly (February's third place) with an image of his daughter dressed as a Heath Ledger-style clown.

Well done to all the competitors.
